8 - Looks like it could be oversauced. Might be the picture. If not, then I'd give it a 9.

9. Even sized pieces, nice arrangement and not too much sauce (getting close to too much though).
6/3/2013 12:27:16 am
8 - very nice, a little less sauce and you have a sure 9
6/3/2013 01:14:12 am
8 - nice but boring - nothing to tell me that it wasn't baked in an oven.

Score/Reasons: 8; This would be a 9 if the chicken hadn't been so slathered in sauce.

Score/Reasons = 9, Nice box.

Score 7 - A box has to stand out from the other entries to get a 9. This entry shows that the team has taken care in the presentation, but all most all teams do that. Sauce is fine, but I'm not judging the sauce and more sauce doesn't make up for the meat over or under cooked and spiced.

Score/Reasons = 9, excellent. Gorgeous!

Score 8. Reasons: There appears to be some great chicken hiding under the heavy coating of sauce, but so much sauce has been put on this entry it has run down between the pieces and does not allow the chicken to be properly presented. Suggestion: lighten up on the amount of sauce and I believe you will improve your scores.

8 what are the weird white specs on the piece in the lower right and above? not much evidence of bbq process (char, grill marks) looks oven roasted.

7- Looks good, nicely arranged, color is very uniform due to what appears to be quite a bit of sauce, maybe a bit too much. Hard to keep the scorecard clean after sampling that one
6/3/2013 05:53:29 am
9 all the way, looks really good!

Score/Reasons = 9, NOT perfect, but looks dadgum appetizing to me! Looks almost over-sauced, but not enough to ding a point.

9. Very good appearance of the turn-in box. Glaze is uniform and pieces are visually appealing. While there is some uneveness of the skin, theuniformity of the glaze tends to overshadow it. Pieces are well presented, appear tender, and well cooked.
6/3/2013 12:14:37 pm
8. Good even color, nice spacing and a good layout. Look moist. The middle left thigh is smaller than the remainder.

Score/Reason = 7, they almost look fake. At first glance, the gave me the impression of something sweet and candied.

9 - Nice symmetry!
6/4/2013 04:17:32 pm
9 - uniform placement of product that has a nice color and looks juicy and tasty.

Score = 9. Nice looking chicken. Good color, uniform sized pieces, and just the right amount of sauce. Although the middle/left piece might be the exception, my first impression was that the skin was cooked well with no chewy/fatty bites.

CERTIFIED BBQ JUDGES:
Please score this BBQ Competition box using the KCBS scoring system below.
1-DISQUALIFIED (give reason).
Click on BOX # in title of post above photo. Fill out the "LEAVE A REPLY" form and use the following format to TITLE each section in your post:
NAME FIELD ON FORM:
State name/CBJ Organization (i.e, Tom - CBJ/KCBS). CBJ=Certified BBQ Judge
EMAIL FIELD ON FORM:
You must be a "registered" BBQ Critic Online Judge in order to judge boxes on this site. Proof of registration is your email. All registered judges are required add their email to the email form field. Emails are kept private and not published. If you do not list your email, your score/post will not appear on the site.
SCORE/REASONS FOR SCORE: Score this entry and give reasons for your score. DO NOT mention garnish or smoke rings in your reasons for scoring. We judge meat only.
SUGGESTIONS: Feel free to offer any suggestions on how to improve the box (keep separate from reasons why you scored the box). You can mention anything here such as garnish suggestions.
The purpose of BBQ Critic's JudgeMyBox section is to provide feedback to competition cooks. Certified BBQ Judges who visit this site will score the photo of a contest box (using KCBS judging rules) and may optionally leave a comment explaining their score.
The idea is to allow the cook to get inside the mind of a judge (judges do have varying opinions) so they can use this information to help improve scores on APPEARANCE.
In turn, the BBQ Critic editorial team will provide feedback on some judge scores and commentary that stray from the KCBS rules. This will help our judges become better judges and keeps everyone on the same page. Judges may also encounter some fun challenges at times (click for example).
Comments about boxes or judges scores may be discussed in our online FORUM in a respectful manner.
Please be mindful that scoring photo boxes may not be as accurate as scoring the box in person. Lighting, glare, angles, etc may affect the overall score. Judges also have more time to stare at your box, so that means we may get very detailed about the good and the bad.
Have fun, judges! Oh, and cooks? Please send us your boxes. We love to judge Q here at BBQ Critic. ;-)
